There's been lots of negative posts about the Cowboys of recent and rightfully so. After all, the team has 6-10, 8-8 and 8-8 the last 3 seasons. Not much positive in that. But I believe we are beginning to see signs of a turnaround. It started with the hiring of Jason Garrett. I think Jerry finally realized that a total makeover was needed and JG showed him that he was the best option to make that happen. Garrett's philosophy hinges on bringing in the right kind of guys. Hard working, high character players. He also focuses on improving day by day, i.e. doing the best you can on the next play in practice, the next drill, the next class. This philosophy is kinda like the Spurs coach Popovich's pounding the rock philosophy. That team also focuses on bringing in high character hard working players. We started seeing signs of progress last year when we had all the injuries. The team never gave up. The players who stepped up seemed prepared. Veterans kept giving 100% and the team competed. We really had some tough breaks last year but I think the adversity benefited the team. We should continue to see improvement this year and with a little luck, a better record and possible playoff run. Talk of Garrett being fired after an 0-4 start is not going to happen because we're not going 0-4. This team is being built the right way. The seeds were planted 3 years ago and started to sprout last year. We can expect continued growth and hopefully a burst of growth. The national media will continue to hound this team and it's players for the foreseeable future. There are many fans here who get their takes from them and will continue to be negative towards the Cowboys and in particular Romo. Don't let them influence how you feel about this team. Those who know and understand football and what it takes to build a team realize that this team is headed in the right direction. There will be bumps in the road. We may even lose the first game against the Giants. If that happens and all the Debbie downers start posting their negativity, know that this team will bounce back and continue to show improvement and be more than capable of making the playoffs. The signs are all around us.
